Spicy Peanut Butter Slaw

I actually saw this recipe by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian in a current issue of Weight Watcher’s.  It is not a WW recipe but they provided the points for this excellent slaw – only 3 points for 1 cup. I made a couple of small changes but not enough to make a difference in the points value. I will make this slaw often this summer and to kick off the grilling season I served it with my Pita Lamb Burgers.

Spicy Peanut Butter Slaw

  • 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (I did use low-fat)
  • 1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Sriracha sauce or any hot chili sauce (it is spicy with 2 tsp. which I like but you might want to start out with 1 tsp.)
  • 2 tsp. dark sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • dash or two of kosher salt
  • 6 cups shredded green cabbage (I used almost a 14 oz. bag of shredded cabbage and carrots, except for 1 cup)
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots (not needed if you use the cabbage mix above)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced radishes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (white and green parts)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (I used parsley as I am not a fan of cilantro just like Ina!)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins, chopped (I used a mixed variety of raisins)

Combine the first seven ingredients and mix well.  Add to the rest of the ingredients and chill until ready to serve.

  1. What a grand list of healthy ingredients Judi. Welcome to Fiesta Friday, this cole slaw would be great for the upcoming weather wouldn’t it? I’m sure it went down real well with your lamb pita burgers. I think with the addition of the peanut butter and Greek yogurt, this would surely stand out. Thanks for bringing this for us today, have yourself a gorgeous weekend! Predictions for tomorrow here better be right 76 deg :))))


    • Thank you Loretta – I love cole slaw and this is a change from the one I usually serve. You’re right the peanut butter and yogurt added some great flavor, oh and then of course Sriracha sauce! It is in the high 70’s here in Michigan! My Magnolia tree is starting to bloom. the grass is so green – just love spring. Happy FF 🙂


  2. I love cole slaw (I’m the only one in my house!) and have been looking for something a little different and I think this one will fit the bill very nicely. I’ve bookmarked and will be making! Thanks, Juju!
